I was fortunate today to Mike McCann Nebraska Land Broker Korean War Vets Headed to DC 2014cwatch 25 Korean Vets and their escorts load up on a Charter Bus and head to Kansas City to board a flight to DC.  I am impressed with how many of our Veterans have been able to travel on these flights.

All the Vets who were left from WWII that wanted to go on the flights have went already and now the committee is sending the Korean War Vets.

The Vets bus was escorted on the highway by the Mike McCann Nebraska Land Broker - Nebraska Korean War Vets Headed to DC2014cPatriot Guard motorcycle club who are mostly Vietnam and later veterans!

Sadly, some who were on the early WWII flights a few years ago have been laid down for the final time as age and time have overcame even the strong! 

Every time I hear of a WWII Vet passing I say a prayer of thanks.

A prayer that Thanks them for the sacrifices made back then and for the ones who never made it home and Mike McCann Nebraska Land Broker Korean War Vets on I-80 headed to DC 2014cfor those who suffered for years as a result of the fighting.

I also do this each time I know of someone who fought in later wars and have now lost their final battle on Earth. 

I wish these Korean War soldiers and their escorts a fun journey...and a safe ride home!!

And to each of them...and their families...

 

THANK YOU!

Mike, this is a great way to support and respect our Vets. I like Andrews comment, yes I to believe everyday is Veterans day and it just pisses me off when they're disrespected.

Hi Andrew and Bob...  Thanks for stoppng by.

I agree with both of you.  Here is a little thing that I do...at first I did it because of a respect thing...and then it became more:

When I see a Veteran sitting at a mall or some store...usally waiting while wife is shopping...I strike up a conversation. (I am usually also waiting as it takes me 5 minutes to go through a Penny's or similar store).

The stories I have heard about the military could fill a book...and maybe that is what I should be doing as these great warriors have many stories to share...not just about battle, but about R&R, boat rides, state side, private life, family.

Yes, you are right Andrew, everyday should be Veterans Day!! And Bob, I agree completely!!

My Pap was a Korean Vet and he passed away last year...almost a year ago. In October. He was PROUD of his service. Matter of fact, just days before he unexpectedly passed away, he was with my Grandma at a restaurant and a gentleman paid for their lunch and thanked him for his service. I was told he beamed and that man who paid has no idea how he made my Pap feel just days before he died. 

I love this ride and am glad to see people from all over the country take part.

Wow...what a story.  I am sorry for your loss last year.  I do rejoice in the fact that many of our Veterans are finally getting the respect they earned and should have had their entire lives.

Thank you for stopping by Shannon!!
